In my last blog post I showed you how Steve Olsher and I did a simultaneous live stream while recording a video. This ability to live stream your videos will absolutely be the next big thing to impact your business. Live video has actually been around for a few years – since webinars became available and then popularized by Google Hangouts. But now mobile apps are bringing this technology mainstream. Periscope, Blab, and Facebook Live are a few examples.
I recently attended an event where Joel Comm gave a demonstration about how to use these tools and it became obvious how this is going to revolutionize any business that takes advantage of it. Imagine for a moment that you are having an event at your store – it might be a sale, an appearance by a celebrity, a product demonstration, or just giving out free food. Now you can stream your event live to the Internet and build even more excitement and bring in more customers!
I am going to be doing a special presentation with Joel Comm on May 12th at 2:00pm Mountain Time. We will be doing this live on Blab.us and simultaneously broadcasting using Facebook Live. You won’t want to miss this! Put it on your calendar now!
